Stine Nilsen for Jamie Watton Monday 16.10

The contemporary class Monday 16. October will be taught by Stine Nilsen, new Artistic Director of the CODA festival! The class will be accompanied with live music by Roger Matte.

Stine Nilsen has worked as freelance dancer and pedagogue since completing her studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Movement and Dance, London, 1993-97.

The class is release-based – with a lot of movement and dynamics, using the whole space. Special emphasis will be placed on articulations and use of breath. Often, a theme will be set at the start of class, giving direction to the work throughout the session.

Join us in starting this year's CODA festival with dance!
